It is with great sadness and heavy, heavy hearts that Je’Caryous Johnson and the entire Je’Caryous Entertainment family mourns the passing of one of our own, our sweet, unforgettable actress/comedian Natalie Desselle Reid.

During rehearsals, in February and March of this year, as we prepared to kick off and tour the stage adaptation of the classic film, B.A.P.S., Natalie was excited and ready to bring her iconic role as “Mickey” back to audiences across the country. Immediately upon meeting and working with her, we fell in love with her undeniably witty, always giving and caring and hilariously show-stopping personality.

The world has truly lost one of its most angelic souls here on Earth. To know Natalie was to know someone who cared for and cultivated her craft to the tea. There will never be another woman like her who so effortlessly lit up the screen, as well as any room she walked into.

Our Je’Caryous Entertainment Family will never forget Natalie and will celebrate the life and legacy she so fearlessly and honorably lived. We extend our heartfelt sympathy, love and support to her husband and children at this time as they mourn their unfathomable loss and stand in prayer with those across the globe.

We will always love you Natalie!
